Ahhh, gin and cocktails. My friend Neil Loomis of Rendez Vous Bistro in Jackson Hole, WY has been playing with gins and concocted a couple of fantastic cocktails. Try these out tonight or this weekend when you’re entertaining family and friends (heck, I’d do it for myself and have a party of one, chez moi).

A nice twist on the classic Gin Rickey

Basil Rickey-

Lightly muddled basil, with 2 oz Small’s Gin, 1 oz fresh lime juice, splash of simple syrup and filled with club soda served over ice in a high ball

The Presbyterian is a three component cocktail made for parties and church revivals. The classic Presbyterian uses whiskey of one sort or another, but since Ransom Old Tom gin draws from early 1800’s gin distillation techniques which had a kissing cousins relationship with American whiskey, this works great.

Old Tom Presbyterian-

Equal portions of Ransom Old Tom, ginger ale and club soda with orange squeeze garnish served in a high ball.

Enjoy and Sláinte
